The 10 Best Tweets of Last Night’s Golden Globes

Share Button

 

This year’s Golden Globes were packed with political punch – celebrities wore all black on the red carpet in solidarity with the Time’s Up movement, shining a spotlight on workplace abuse and inequality. On stage and on camera, celebrities delivered quippy remarks and highly-retweetable moments, not least of which included Oprah’s already legendary speech accepting the Cecil B. DeMille honorary award for “outstanding contributions to the world of entertainment.”

Below, we’ve compiled 10 of our favorite tweets of the night – some poignant, some capturing an important moment in the program, and some we just love because they exist.

5 of This Year’s Biggest Golden Globes Snubs

Share Button
Call Me By Your Name 

 

The Golden Globes nominations have arrived, and overall we’re pretty happy with those honored. Much love was given to Call Me By Your Name, including Best Actor and Best Supporting Actor for Timotheé Chalamet and Armie Hammer, respectively. The Shape of Water sits at the front of the pack with 7 nominations, and Big Little Lies follows with 6, including Best Actress noms for both Nicole Kidman and Reese Witherspoon.

There were, however, several shocking snubs of fan favorite potential contenders, especially suprising since the Golden Globes typically cater more toward public opinion and media buzz than other awards shows. Below, we highlight the five biggest snubs of the season thus far.

The 75th Annual Golden Globes take place on January 7 and are hosted by Seth Meyers.

 

Greta Gerwig, Lady Bird

Seeing as Lady Bird is perhaps ours, and many critics’, favorite film of the year, currently sitting at 99% on Rotten Tomatoes, it’s a true shocker that Gerwig did not receive a highly-deserved Best Director nomination. Sadly, we instead see five men nominated. Hardly anything new in the highly misogynistic category, but still, we thought maybe more progress had been made.

Jordan Peele, Get Out

Similarly to Gerwig’s snub, Jordan Peele was also shut out of the Best Director category for Get Out, even though the film is superbly refined in its vision, not to mention that it raked in a worldwide box office of over $252 million.

Tiffany Hadish, Girls Trip 

Tiffany Hadish far and away stole the show in this summer’s mega blockbuster Girls Trip. She even earned Critics’ Choice nominations for Best Supporting Actress and Best Actress in a Comedy for her part as Dina. We expected the Golden Globes to be eager to continue lauding Hadish with praise. But, sadly, it’s not to be.

Best Screenplay, Get Out

As a frontrunner nominee for Best Original Screenplay at the Oscars, Get Out has already racked up 9 Best Screenplay nominations, and won the honor just recently at the Gotham Awards in New York City. So why was it shut out of Best Screenplay at the Golden Globes, while the far less-discussed film Molly’s Game was able to secure a spot?

Luca Guadagnino, Call Me By Your Name

We hate to complain – Call Me By Your Name is certainly getting its due praise this season. But at the Golden Globes, that praise stopped short of a Best Director nom for the openly gay Guadagnino, while instead continuing to champion the long lineage of straight nominees. It’s shocking, really, since perhaps the greatest strength of the film is its direction and stunning visual impact.

Hulu’s The Handmaid’s Tale came roaring out of the gate for the 2018 Golden Globes, winning a nomination for Best Drama Series, as well as a nod for Elisabeth Moss in the category for Best Performance by an Actress in a Television Series, Drama. The race satire, Get Out, won nominations for Best Motion Picture, Musical or Comedy, and for its British star Daniel Kaluuya.

Other nominations included Saoirse Ronan for her role in Greta Gerwig’s indie fave Lady Bird, and Timothee Chalamet and Armie Hammer for Luca Guadagnino’s sumptuous Call Me By Your Name (the movie also got a Best Picture nod) – while Jessica Lange and Susan Sarandon were both nominated for their roles, respectively, as Joan Crawford and Bette Davis in Ryan Murphy’s Feud. Ronan’s Lady Bird co-star, Laurie Metcalf, was also nominated in the Best Supporting Actress category. Also nominated for Best Drama, alongside The Handmaid’s Tale, were The CrownStranger ThingsGame of Thrones, and This is Us.

Big Little Lies picked up six nominations, including one for Nicole Kidman for Best Television Performance by an Actress. The full list of winners will be chosen by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association and announced at the ceremony on January 7.

This Is How You Can Look Like the Eternally Un-Aging Jennifer Lopez

Jennifer Lopez has a lot of things on her to-do list, and apparently, aging is not one of them. The superstar showed up to this year’s Golden Globes boasting her fabulous globes for the globe to see — and nobody was complaining. At 45-years-old, Jenny has come a long way from the block, but she definitely isn’t showing it. With no wrinkle in sight, one may wonder how after 45 years of living on this earth with its pollution JLO has only chiseled abs and luscious locks to show for it.

Let’s face it, to look like Jennifer Lopez you’re going to have to workout like Jennifer Lopez. Her trainer of choice is of course Tracy Anderson. The star is said to constantly work out with cardio including biking, running, boxing and the stair master. Never skipping a beat, JLO does not go two days without breaking a sweat. Simple enough, right?

No. You must also have a strict diet if you want to have that radiant glow that Jen has. This diet includes absolutely no sugar or salt. Also you’ve gotta give up your alcohol and those pesky cigarettes.

When it comes to her skin. the star told Allure that “I get my cleanser from my dermatologist. I need a great cleanser because I’ve had to wear a lot of makeup for so many years. I use a very mild makeup remover and a very basic sunscreen-moisturizer combo, and I try to get lots of sleep.”

You can easily try all of the above steps and in 20 years see where it gets you. But, let’s face it, with all her millions in the bank Jennifer surely secretly scurries to the world’s best doctors for some laser-encouraged tightening and lifting, scalpel or not.

Red Hot, Majorly Metallic, and Flops… Every Golden Globe Red Carpet Trend Is Here

While some trends are truly enduring (old Hollywood glamour, whatever that means!), many more are far more fleeting–do we expect starlets in 2070 trying to replicate their version of “old Hollywood glamour” with cut-outs and illusion netting? Here’s a sampling of some of Hollywood’s top talents dipping their toes into pants (!), primary colors (!!), and butterflies (oh my!!!)

Metallics

Julianne Moore loves avant garde designer gowns, the appeal of which can be totally lost between the runway and red carpet. In this custom Givenchy piece however, she looks fantastic; the glittering silver graduates beautifully into the ombre feathers–it’s a lot of look, to be sure, but she pulls is off.

Dakota Johnson’s Chanel is similarly silver (and tricky), but I wish that the dress had a more straight hem–I’m personally not a huge fan of mullet hems, and especially when they’re not done with such a loose fabric. [Editor’s note: DISAGREE. One of the best looks of the night.]

Bold metallics can be deployed well in more minimalist dresses–Reese Witherspoon’s silvery Calvin Klein is a straightforward silhouette with just enough detail in the beading to keep it from looking pedestrian, and she had the red carpet savvy and confidence to make a strong impact.

The Emilia Wickstead worn by Diane Kruger makes a strong impression with a chic and modern shape that we’ve come to expect from Kruger, who, like Moore, loves couture gowns for a spin on the red carpet.

Jessica Chastain’s Versace would have made a huge impact regardless of the gorgeous burnt gold shade of the gown, but she imbued the dramatically draped dress with a sex appeal we don’t often see from the ridiculously-prolific actress.

White with Side Body Skin Reveals

Like we said earlier, when you see it three times, it’s a veritable trend. Rosamund Pike and Kate Hudson wore structurally-similar white gowns with side cut-outs, but Kate Hudson’s dress is quintessentially Versace: tight, sexy, and outrageous, in an appropriately-formal way.

 The Vera Wang that Pike wore, however, has strangely thin straps where thicker ones would be much better, and it’s making the bust stand off of her chest in a way that does her no favors. She had a baby five weeks ago, and looks objectively amazing, making this gown’s appearance all the more disappointing.

Emily Blunt’s is the most classic of the three, with the Michael Kors-custom gown embodying a beautifully-made, Grecian inspired ensemble.

Ladies Wearing Pants

Emma Stone, possibly inspired by the Golden Globe outfit another Emma (Watson, in Dior last year), wore pants on the red carpet. Pants! This Lanvin jumper looked completely chic, with the crystal detail on the top offset by the beautifully cut black trousers, complete with a bewildering, but ultimately exciting, side/back bow that also created a small train.

Nominee Lorde also opted for a pantset this year, sticking true to her offbeat style in a custom Narcisco Rodriguez suit that spoke to her trend-resistant style while not making her look like Morticia Adams. Or significantly older than 17, which is how old she is.

Afros

After making such a memorable (caped!) splash at last year’s Globes, it was nice to see a looser, sexier Lupita Nyong’o in this white and purple Giambattista Valli Couture gown. Lupita is rarely seen without her short natural hair, and her styling team has demonstrated the myriad ways in which it can be played with and adapted to any event, making as strong a case for the afro — or any iteration of natural hair — on the red carpet as any.

YOLO Icon Prince also sported an afro at the Globes, making an amazing surprise appearance.

Vintage-Inspired Looks

“Old Hollywood Glamour” is such a red carpet cliche that it’s hard to swallow another actress describing her gown as such; it’s even harder to swallow when it’s as miserably depressing Lana del Rey’s turquoise gown is. She looks like a re-animated Priscilla Presley wax figure.

Screen Shot 2015-01-12 at 10.53.03 AMPhoto: @goldenglobes on Instagram

Keira Knightley’s ruffled bib-nightgown looks like a vaguely victorian confirmation dress–this is made all the more distressing by the fact that it took more than 30 people from Chanel’s design team over a week to complete this gown. The fact that such an extraordinary amount of labor went into crafting this glorified bib-nightgown set with a crushing lack of poeticism or grace is depressing. Look: there’s a butterfly attached to the bag. Look: there are butterflies beaded onto her skirt. It’s entirely too literal and marks a rare miss for the normally-chic Brit.

Red

For years, ladies avoided red on the red carpet, most likely for the logistical challenges that can arise from being photographed in fabric the same color as the surface they’re standing on. However, more and more leading ladies, undaunted by the possibility of blending into the carpet. Heidi Klum went for her usual overt sex appeal in her usual Versace.

 Jane Fonda, also slaying in Versace, and Helen Mirren in Dolce, acted as physical manifestations of those “Sexy at Every Age” articles. Helen Mirren is 69. Jane Fonda is 77. Let that sink in.

Holding it down for the millennial set, “Girls” co-stars Lena Dunham and Allison Williams also wore red gowns last night: Allison opted for an Armani Prive gown with beautiful red beading that offered a welcome break from her often-prim choices. Zac Posen created yet another ill-fitting gown for Lena–he’s her former babysitter so I get the sentimental choice, but he has served her wrong on too many occasions now. Good color for her, though.

Yellow

Reese Witherspoon wore a vintage yellow gown to the Globes back in the early aughts, starting a huge trend for both the bold color and throwback style. Jenna Dewan-Tatum, in a loose, romantic Carolina Herrera gown modeled a softer, gentler yellow on the carpet.

Leslie Mann’s Kaufman Franco sheath hugged her body like a glove, and the successful use of the brighter hue demonstrated yellow’s surprising versatility.

Gucci created a more classic belted gown for Naomi Watts, though the entire outfit was essentially a canvas for her incredible Bulgari snake necklace. It was a huge and risky statement piece that elevated the whole look.

All in all, this year’s Globes had a fairly safe, and sometimes pedestrian, red carpet. Usually billed as Hollywood’s biggest party due to its early date in the awards season and massive amounts of booze distributed, it seems like these A-Listers might be reserving their big statement pieces for later awards shows– even this last night’s style flops were somewhat conservative. Hopefully we’ll find more surprises and risk-takers along the way: remember, we’re only just getting started.

Award show season has (unofficially) begun! Call your stylist and snag a Valentino fresh off the runway to ensure you’ll look your best on the step and repeat. For this set of 2014 Golden Globe nominees, looking their hottest wont take much. Keira Knightly could show up in a maternity dress and still be the hottest dime on the red carpet.

STYLE SCOOP: Is Prada Under Investigation for Tax Evasion?

Share Button

See every red carpet look from last night’s Golden Globes, including best dressed Lupita Nyong-o in Ralph Lauren and a baby-bumped Kerry Washington in Balenciaga.

Prada may be under surveillance for tax evasion from undeclared income, but Miuccia and the gang aren’t admitting to it, and claim to be unaware of any investigation.

Function and fashion together at last? Talking to Opening Ceremony’s Carol Lim about partnering up with Intel.

Will Milan final open up to the young designers? Milan Fashion Week is notoriously set in its ways, with fledgling designers hardly getting a chance to show their collections at home. This men’s season, things might be changing. Think MSGM and Massimo Piombo. 

Amy Poehler and Tina Fey Respond to Taylor Swift

Share Button

I imagine that Amy Poehler and Tina Fey typically ignore the things that other people say about them, in print no less, but I suppose when a 23-year-old suggests that you’ll burn in hell, it’s time to make a statement. "Aw, I feel bad if she was upset," Poehler told The Hollywood Reporter. "I am a feminist, and she is a young and talented girl. That being said, I do agree I am going to hell. But for other reasons. Mostly boring tax stuff." Meanwhile, Fey spoke to Entertainment Tonight, and her response to Swift’s notion that she was a woman-hating monster from hell was as follows: "If anyone was going to get mad at us, I thought it would be James Cameron. I did not see that one coming. It was a joke. It was a lighthearted joke." Meanwhile, no one has bothered asking Michael J. Fox’s son how he feels.

Amy Poehler and Tina Fey Are Probably Laughing Into Their Copies of ‘Vanity Fair’

Share Button

"There’s a special place in hell for women who don’t help other women," Katie Couric apparently told Taylor Swift once, which Swift reveals in this month’s Vanity Fair cover story while giving a metaphoric side-eye to Amy Poehler and Tina Fey. This is, of course, in response to Poehler and Fey joking about Swift’s love life at the Golden Globes back in January (when they told her to stay away from Michael J. Fox’s son). Can’t you just imagine those two fortysomething mean girls Tina and Amy calling each other this morning, giggling and scribbling over Taylor’s face in their burn books? I bet one of them will call to apologize, but the other one will be listening in on a sneaky three-way call. It’s kind of a shame, huh, that Tina Fey and Amy Poehler care so much about Taylor Swift. Ugh, they are probably JUST JEALOUS.
